Just in case anyone missed it, the small patch that will be releasing soon (3.1.3) will be making some changes to Mimiron. There will be three changes in total:
The flight time of Rocket Strikes has been increased, and Rocket Strikes will try to prefer players at range.
The Leviathan MK II component of the V-07-TR-ON (phase 4 feet) will become stunned during Phase 4 when the VX-001 component begins to cast the Laser Barrage ability.
Proximity mines now deal less damage and have a lower duration. A small arming time has also been added so proximity mines will not detonate immediately on creation.
It is the second of these changes that I am happy to see. What this does, it is basically makes the feet in phase 4…well, manageable during a laser barrage. It also means, if I am reading it correctly, that the feet cannot cast Shock Blast during a laser barrage. In my opinion this is a good change, and not so much a “Nerf” as something that probably should have been in place from the introduction of Ulduar as the feet mechanics during laser barrage were oddly (and perhaps even poorly?) designed, and clumsy.
These changes should help the chaos in phase 4 of this encounter significantly, and should help those that will be learning him for the first time immensely. So, as you bask in the glorious…GLORY! that is Mimiron, you should be able to do it breathing a little easier in phase 4 🙂
